Carrot Top Pesto
This is a great recipe to get more greens in your life and use up carrot tops. Carrot tops have healthy vitamins in them, including vitamin C.

Recipe:
1 cup carrot tops
1 cup spinach
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (optional but I loved it)
1 - 3 cloves of garlic (depends on how much you like garlic)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 roasted unsalted cashews
1/2 cup of olive oil

Directions:
In a food processor, blend all the ingrediants but the olive oil. After you have have blended for about a minute, slowly start adding in your olive oil. Blend until you have reached desired consistency. I like it a tad chunky.

Where you can use Pesto:
Directly mix a few tablespoons with some cooked pasta. Place it inside a sliced chicken breast and bake. Smother on some buttered toast and top with your favorite cheese and bake to melt the cheese.
